VA-Sen: Webb Responds to Allen Smears: "The fish rots from the head down"

You probably won't be surprised that Jim Webb came out swinging today, in the wake of the Allen campaign's attempts to smear him by taking a few quotes from his books out of context.

The venue was the get out the vote kickoff rally which was held today in Annandale -- and extremely well attended. If the enthusiasm there was any indicator, we're going to win this, with the last couple of percentage points earned by the hard work of thousands of volunteers.

I haven't transcribed the entire speech, but I wanted to post the video, which I hope you will share widely via the "share" button on YouTube and by linking to it from other blogs and comments. If every Virginia voter could see this speech, Jim Webb would win this election hands down. I'm going to post some key quotes here, but do watch the video.

I shot the video of this event in the hopes that it would be shared widely over the internet, so that people would be able to see Jim Webb address the Allen campaign's scurrilous smears in his own words. I would urge you to do whatever you can to get this video before as many eyeballs as possible, particularly Virginia voters and the media.

I also filmed the intros by Governor Tim Kaine and Mark Warner. YouTube is still processing them, but I will edit the diary to add links when they become available. Unfortunately, since MiniDV video tapes are only an hour long, and I didn't know how long the speeches would go, I wasn't able to film the excellent speeches by Jim Moran, Judy Feder, and Andrew Hurst.


..... if you want to find accountability for this, remember that the fish rots from the head down.

...our government should no longer be in the hands of a group of unprincimpled, small minded, power hungry, character assassins...


Go Webb! Great speech
